Thror's Ring is an Eamon game (number 114 in the Eamon Adventurer's Guild's list). It is a quest to find and reclaim Thror's ring from the depths of Moria. This is the second best Eamon adventure according to a vote by the members of the Eamon Adventurer's Guild. It is the prequel to Assault on Dolni Keep.

Personal evaluation: If you happen to like the Eamon concept (text-only, heavily influenced by hack-n-slash role-playing, etc) then Thror's Ring is excellent. It has much humour, good room descriptions and a fairly interesting plot.
